STEFAN KRAUS
3d Art Direct interviews the creator of the 3d landscape mesh creation tool WorldCreator.
” If you create a terrain, you can create a preset for that terrain and share with others. We have something like 2,000 or 3,000 presets that are shipped with the tool.”
WORLDCREATOR
JESSE-LEE LANG
3d Art Direct talks glows, shadows and more, with expert Carrara 3d artist Jesse-Lee Lang.
“Carrara has great tools for lighting and plenty of options, for anyone just starting I’d say just to keep it simple, throw some shapes into a scene along with your lighting and then just play with these light sources and their options and study the way the lights and shadows react with the objects”
CARRARA
BRITTA JACOBS
3d Art Direct interviews veteran Vue artist Britta Jacobs, from the mountains of Switzerland.

Read issue 21 : A Salute to Harry Harrison and Discover Digital Art Styled After Lady Gaga

One of the greatest influences that nudged me into the sci-fi realm was the author Harry Harrison, who sadly passed away last month.

He was a prolific and consistent writer. So prolific that he managed to finish of his memoirs a few days before he died.

The first Harry Harrison books I read were easily discovered on my father’s bookshelf. It was a few books from the Stainless Steel Rat Series. These stories of the independent hero James DiGriz were written in the first person “I”, which caught my attention and sucked me into the narrative more effectively than many other books. The series was styled as tongue in cheek science fiction, but beyond the humour it served me an important example of a cheerful and intelligent protagonist winning against a universe full of silly rules, regulations and boundaries – perfect for a teenager like me at the time that didn’t like the status quo of certain parts of society.

You can read the rest of my salute to Harry in the editorial of this issue’s free 3D Art Direct magazine. We also cover interviews with artists that use Carrara, Daz Studio and Lightwave to amazing effect.

3DAD 006 : How to create character digital art with impact: Interview with Deedee Davies on Poser Pro and Photoshop

In this session I interview a British artist called Deedee Davies who creates some outstanding artwork with Carrara Pro, Vue, Poser Pro and Photoshop.

Have you ever wondered how to create art with impact, especially for media such as book covers? Deedee reveals some tips on this and other great resources as she talks about her artwork.

I hope you enjoy the interview with Deedee and take a look at her portfolio at www.3dfantasyart.co.uk/

You can download the podcast

In the interview we cover:-

  • How to create art with impact. Does less really mean more? eBook covers Vs physical book covers.
  • Trying to gain decent colour palettes in your scenes; using complementary colours. Deedee mentions the tool http://colorschemedesigner.com/ 
  • “Too little emotion and your character looks like a shop window dummy, too much and they look crazed.”. Using the Liquify tool in Photoshop to overcome this.
  • What was it like for Deedee when she gained her first commissions and in helping to sell stories and novels for authors with her book cover artwork?.
